Jail credit for two different cases

Recommended Posts

If I am in custody on two different cases and I demand speedy trial and state elected on other charge, does jail credit count up until the state elected and up until i was found not guilty on charge state elected on. does time count to other case?

I would believe your attorney over an anonymous non-lawyer on the internet.  See People v. Latona (1998)  184 Ill.2d 260 at  271: "to the extent that an offender sentenced to consecutive sentences had been incarcerated prior thereto on more than one offense simultaneously, he should be given credit only once for actual days served. To the extent that he spent additional, nonsimultaneous time in presentence custody on one offense or the other, he should be afforded a single credit for that time as well. Defendants must be given credit for all the days they actually served, but no more."
